Pass or fail?
Because I was in the area yesterday, I made a stop in at Sock Dreams in Milwaukie. After browsing the entire shop, stopping by the compression socks, & the anklet style & the leg warmers I finally could not resist the $8 black & white checkered thigh highs. I bought another old favorite knee-high argyle socks in black, grey & white for $10 it’s a steal. I already have them in brown, teal & beige, but my very first pair was in tan & tangerine. I had been thinking about trying sock glue for some time since I’m not a fan of yet-another-layer, like garters. I bought the sock glue & realized I could also use it for my toupée!
To inspire myself to go to work I thought up a smashing outfit including my new socks & a new black skirt I bought last week at the thrift store. Topped off with a white shirt & black shrug. I was feeling the mime. The theatrical version, not the Multipurpose Internet Mail Extension, which are so easily confused. While working my 5 hours at the Library I had a patron come up to me while I was straightening the new release books & tell me that my socks were “awesome!” What surprised me was that the complimenter was a guy. I never see that coming.
I also had a coworker tell me they liked my socks so win for that. Also a win on the two braids hairdo. Lots of compliments there. The braids were a last minute decision because I was too busy thinking about my socks. As for the sock glue it is an absolute win, aka pass. I didn’t have to pull up my socks the entire 5 hours & with all the bending, walking, reaching, leaning, crouching & standing it held strong. I did not do an army crawl, but that isn’t skirt appropriate. I am a huge fan of sock glue now. Have you tried it? How did it hold up under your wig?
Also I had to admit I did not wear my cute new black wedges to work, but the flat, sensible shoes.
Opinions, preferences? Heels/flats?
